The Fairmont Dallas is part of the Fairmont Hotels & Resorts brand, a name synonymous with classic luxury and time-honored tradition. Opened in 1969, the hotel is widely considered one of the original luxury resorts in the Dallas area. Guests can visit the rooftop to chill by the pool beneath the bright Texas sky. In the evenings, the Pyramid Restaurant & Bar offers alternative dining - straying from typical Texan fare, dishes like the pressed octopus, Berkshire pork belly, and kaffir & chili crusted ostrich are exotic changes from the traditional steak and barbecue.

Good Location, but really nothing special.

It's a huge place, plent of ballrooms and meeting space. The location is really good. Close to everything downtown. Also, there is plent of close-by parking, if you don't want to pay the $25. a night valet fee. But, if you're looking for a four-star (high quality) room (City View), well, it's just average. It's not bad, not in the least, but it's not spectaular. The four star rating may have you thinking otherwise. I'm not sure if this was New Years specific, but if you want to bring in a bottle of wine, you may want to call ahead. They were taking peoples bottles going in. I don't know if this is a policy, and I don't neccesarily disagree with it, but I won't stay there if I plan on bringing a drink. I was traveling for fun. This place was bleh.

Dallas Museum of Art and the Dallas World Aquarium are within a couple blocks. Check them out. Awesome. Great food at the DMA Cafe! Inexpensive too.

Nice location

The locations was great: in Downtown but really close to Uptown and not as expensive as the hotels there. When you walk in, it'll tunr out a very nice hotel, but then the rooms are not as spacious as you could think. Quite tight. And the most important thing is that we had a weird issue with the bathroom: water comming up from the wastepipe to the washbasin!!!

Impeccable service, amazing rooms, perfect location

Everything was great from the moment we checked in. Our room was originally for a King, however when I asked if there were 2 doubles available, they upgraded us to a double suite at no charge. Our room was spotloss and had a great view of downtown. The hotel staff was extremely courtious and knowledgeable. The bar area in the lobby was also very nice and the service was top notch. I will definitely be staying here again and will recommend it to friends/family.

Beautiful hotel. Great service

Super comfortable bed. Even with a person in the bathroom, it was very quiet in the room. Location was close to Meyerson Symphony Hall.
